A rising number of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) cases have now been reported within the Chicagoland area. Nothing is more important to us than the safety and well-being of our community.

Current due dates will be extended to cover our closure. Items placed in our outside drop box will be checked in daily. We encourage patrons to use our digital library where you can download eBooks and eAudiobooks from the comfort of your home.
